So High Right Now

April 17th, 2012.  CD22, 7DPIUI.

I know, I know.

This post title would have been better suited to a 4/20 post.

But I needed to accurately convey how excited I am about my uterine lining and progesterone numbers from today!

My lining last cycle was an 18, with which the study docs were impressed…

This month it was a 20!  The ultrasound tech literally said “Holy crap.  That’s the thickest lining I’ve seen yet!”

I just got the call with my progesterone numbers, too.  To recap, last cycle was 14.6.

This cycle?

40!

I know, I know, it can mean NOTHING.

But it’s so encouraging, I’m going to pretend it means SOMETHING.

Don’t poop on my parade, people.

This day rules.  🙂

    That so exciting! Did you ask to have your lining and progesterone tested at 7dpiui or is that part of your clinic’s standard practice? They didn’t do that for me with my first IUI but I’m thinking of asking for it this time around. Are you taking progesterone supplements? That # is ridiculously amazing. The lining # too!

    It’s standard procedure for the study I’m enrolled in, but I haven’t done an IUI at another facility before. From what I understand, it’s pretty standard to test progesterone at least.

    They do it around 7dpiui so they can see if you have enough naturally occuring progesterone to support a pregnancy, and to verify ovulation. You may be on a different protocol, though!

    I think it’s a good idea to have your progesterone checked, though. There’s no harm in asking, and it’s a simple blood test!

    I am taking a supplement, but I’m taking it orally, which I was told would not show up in the blood level numbers…

    I think it could mean something! I know my progesterone was only 19 at 7dpo on Clomid. Fingers crossed!
